Liselle Mason is in trouble. For weeks, she ignored the changes in her body and tried to forget her brief relationship with Oscar Price, her moody classmate at Bluford High. But when Liselle's clothes stop fitting, and her brother notices her growing belly, she panics. A pregnancy test confirms her biggest fears. Unwilling to admit the truth, Liselle suddenly faces a world with no easy answers. Where will she turn? Who will she tell? What will she do? (from barnesandnoble.com)
It was good because it was about tough subjects and I want to learn a ton about that kinda stuff. I don’t really think it needs anything improved. –Mercedes H.
This book was interesting. Every chapter was something new with Liselle. There could have been more action in this book. I would recommend this book to a middle schooler to teach some of these young people what it’s like to have a baby at a young age. --Tiera W.
[This book was good because] she inspires others to not have a baby at a young age. [There is] nothing [that could be improved about this book]. --Tyren M.
I [liked] the description of how upset Liselle was when she found out she was pregnant. I think that if the whole thing was a flashback it would be easier to understand. Yes, [I would recommend this book to middle schoolers] because it teaches us to not get pregnant at a young age because it is not easy to go to school and take care of yourself and a kid. --Alexus I.
The action [in this book was good and] the way it seemed realistic. [The book could be improved if there was] more about her life after she has the baby. Yes, [I would recommend this book because] it teaches you not to get pregnant at 16. --Josh R.
